Join the National Trick or Treat Day Saturday Celebration

As the voice of the Halloween industry, the Halloween & Costume Association is dedicated to improving the Halloween experience for ALL, which is why we’re helping to promote the celebration of Halloween on the last Saturday of October! 

Instead of changing the date that American's celebrate Halloween, we will be adding an additional day of festivities in the hopes of bringing more people together. National Trick or Treat Day will take place annually on the last Saturday of October when Americans can participate in community parades, throw neighborhood parties and opt for daytime Trick or Treating.

Rather than condensing the holiday into a few short hours on a school night, battling both daylight and evening traffic, the initiative seeks to add a day of celebration on the last Saturday in October. In a partnership with Party City, we will launch the #ALLoween campaign designed to support the all-day celebration of National Trick or Treat Day AND the time-honored traditions of Halloween on October 31st. This would make for a safer, longer, and bigger celebration, the way it should be!
